Our biggest mistake was not checking Trip Advisor before staying here! The location is great for anything in Solvang, but we would not recommend more than one night. There is no internet, even though the owner claimed there is. I went to the front desk and she offered us to check out and stay somewhere else. The blanket was ripped, the towels are tired, the microwave didnt work, and there were ANTS crawling around, and it's winter! Next time we would stay down the road in Buellton, which is only 3 miles..
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Viking Motel is part of the celebrated Danish culture in Solvang. It was originally built in 1920 by Danish immigrants and was called "The Little House." Over the years it has been a honeymoon cottage, a boutique and a doctor's office. The palm trees in front of the motel were planted in 1922. Today, the historic Viking Motel offers comfortable, affordable accommodations with a flavor of old world charm. Conveniently located, the Viking Motel is close to many of Santa Barbara County’s attractions including Solvang’s Scandinavian Shopping Village, the Hans Christian Anderson Museum, the Chumash Indian Casino Resort and some of the Santa Ynez Valley’s finest wineries. Now under new management, the recently refurbished Viking Motel welcomes both American and International visitors to Solvang, California. ... more less
